  1. Heat a skillet over high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add salmon, cover, and cook 4 minutes.
  2. Heat another skillet over medium heat. Add remaining olive oil, shallot, and garlic. Cook until slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add spinach.
  3. Turn salmon over. Cook, uncovered, until fish flakes easily with fork, an additional 4 minutes. Toss spinach until wilted; add quinoa. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  4. Plate spinach-quinoa mixture and lay salmon on top. Add lemon wedge.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Reduce salmon cooking time if you like a medium or medium-well center.
